ISO/TC 43, Acoustics
Standardization in the field of acoustics, including methods of measuring acoustical phenomena, their generation, transmission and reception, and all aspects of their effects on man and his environment.
Excluded: electro-acoustics and the implementation of specifications of the characteristics of measuring instruments for acoustic purposes.
ISO/TC 43/SC1 Noise
ISO/TC 108, Mechanical Vibration, Shock and Condition Monitoring
Standardization in the field of mechanical vibration and shock and condition monitoring and diagnostics of machines, including:
- excitation by sources, such as machines and vibration and shock testing devices;
- elimination, reduction and control of vibration and shock, especially by balancing, isolation and damping;
- measurement and evaluation of human exposure to vibration and shock;
- methods and means of measurement and calibration;
- methods of testing;
- methods of measurement, handling and processing of the data required to perform condition monitoring and diagnostics of machines.
ISO/TC108/SC 2, Measurement and evaluation of mechanical vibration and shock as applied to machines, vehicles, and structures
ISO/TC 108/SC 2 is responsible for all international standards related to measurement methods, motion parameters and procedures for evaluating vibration or shock in vehicles, machines, ships and structures including their environmental effects.
ISO/TC 108/SC 3, Use and calibration of mechanical vibration and shock measuring instruments
ISO/TC 108/SC 4, Human exposure to mechanical vibration and shock
ISO/TC 108/SC 4 is concerned with the standardization in the field of shock, vibration and related biodynamic environments with regards to health, safety, performance and comfort criteria and guidelines regarding the effects of occupational and non-occupational exposures on the human population (environments of primary interest are: vibration, rotational oscillations, shock and impact transmitted to the whole-body or parts thereof). Preparation of standard terminology and characterization of the biodynamic properties of humans with and without support and restraint devices by means of biodynamic models or analogues is also included as a basis for the description of the physical, behavioural, and physiological effects of the mechanical environments under consideration.
ISO/TC 108/SC 5, Condition monitoring and diagnostics of machines
Standardization of the procedures, processes and equipment requirements uniquely related to the technical activity of condition monitoring and diagnostics of machines in which selected physical parameters associated with an operating machine are periodically or continuously sensed, measured and recorded for the interim purpose of reducing, analyzing, comparing and displaying the data and information so obtained and for the ultimate purpose of using this interim result to support decisions related to the operation and maintenance of the machine.
ISO/TC 108/SC 6, Vibration and shock generating systems
Standardization in the field of vibration and shock generating systems, for test purposes (including environment, seismic and dynamic testing, calibration and diagnostics) as well as auxiliary equipment and instrumentation normally associated with it.
